About The Two Ronnies Spectacle

In a working relationship that started as early in the 1960s in The Frost Report, the lives of Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker – The Two Ronnies – would intertwine to become one of the greatest comedy double acts of all time. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, their unique sketch show became a huge primetime hit, mixing inspired wordplay, comedy characters, song, dance and their trademark news bulletins.

Now, in this brand new and exclusive series, Gold goes behind the glasses to get an insight into what made this comedy juggernaut tick.

The series will delve deep into some of the exciting spectacles from The Two Ronnies, featuring an exclusive interview with Ronnie Corbett himself. Ronnie will also visit the Victoria & Albert Museum to unearth stored personal memorabilia of Ronnie Barker – artefacts that have not been seen on TV before.

Each show will contain numerous classic sketches from their BBC primetime series, alongside rare material from the UK and abroad. As well as in-depth and revealing interviews with friends and colleagues, the show will also feature interviews with a carefully-selected cast of contemporary comedians such as Stephen Mangan, Al Murray and Clive Anderson, who are all genuine fans of The Two Ronnies and offer a nostalgic insight into what made them such special performers.
